Sadly we couldn't eat in but would love to go back and eat in. I wanted something different so I ordered the California eggs Benedict. My only complaint was the sockeye salmon was a bit too salty for me. With take out they put the hollandaise on the side which was perfect. Ur was interesting to see the eggs served... More

Plenty of choices--helps to check the online menu before you go so you will know what you want. Service was good and food was hot and tasty. We enjoyed the Chesapeake benedict with crab meat and the Bayou benedict with chicken, shrimp and chorizo on polenta--very large portion! Potatoes are delicious too. Can't wait to visit again.

i recently visit eggspectation during a recent family funeral, a street person recommended the restaurant. My sister(philly) and cousins from (det) were impressed with the decor and customer service. The food presentation was great. The french toast w/eggs, bacon was delicious and plentiful.

If you love eggs then the name says it all. I usually get the eggs Benedict and it is always good. The bar is pretty happening during happy hour and if you wanted to dine in, the wait time is not very long. The longest I have waited during the busy time: 20 minutes. Also, a great place to play,...

We've eaten at Eggspectation a couple of times, although it's been a while ago. My husband enjoys the omelets, but I didn't find the food especially appetizing. For me, this place is just ok.

Half priced apps during happy hour. Lots of variety and delicious. Highly enjoyed ahi tuna nachos, honey old bay wings, crab dip and apple Brie crostini. Happy hour 7 days a week. Decent portion size and excellent prices. Can't wait to go back. Grab a huge muffin on the way out!

Inviting space with stone work and fireplace, lodge feel. The menus is great, the coffee and juice delicious, all details attended to. A nice place to ease into your meal. Seems overpriced a bit, but McDs it aint...

If you are looking for a place that serves a quick tasty breakfast or lunch, this is it. There is a large bar area with a tv, and tables or booths, for seating. They have quite a nice variety of healthy tasty menu options to choose from. I find all of the food, decent choices with ample portions. You can... More

Waiter was very attentive. I did not particularly enjoy my meal but I think I just did not make the right choice. I had the waffle with chicken.
